Two quadrants left to pour for the WR1 roof

Waluga Reservoir 1 Roof Replacement Construction Update

In mid-February, crews poured the first quadrant for the WR1's new roof! The roof is being poured in a checkerboard pattern, one quadrant at a time. Each quadrant requires 256 cubic yards of concrete to be poured, about 25 concrete truck loads in one day!

Crews are now at the halfway mark with two of the four quadrants poured. Weather permitting, the final two quadrants will be poured early-mid next week!

Over the next week, crews will be working on forming the access hatches and adding handrail around the perimeter. Crews will also begin stripping the deck shoring support for the first two quadrants, now that the concrete has cured.

Neighbors should expect an increase in noise and truck traffic during concrete pours, as a large pumper truck and many concrete trucks will be arriving and departing from the site.

Please watch for flaggers on Carman Drive, and expect some minor delays during pours.

Generally, work hours are Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. - 6 p.m., with some Saturdays, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Pedestrian access safety reminder

Through spring 2017, there is no public access allowed on the site due to active construction. All pathways through the reservoir site are closed to ensure safety. Thank you for your assistance and patience.
